Welcome to the website of the Indonesian-German Center for Nano and Quantum Technologies (IG-Nano). The IG-Nano is a bilateral cooperation between the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) and the Technische Universität Braunschweig (TU Braunschweig). It considers itself as an interdisciplinary research center, at which Indonesian and German scientists and Doctoral and Master students work together in the fields of nano and quantum technologies, including but not limited to nanometrology, nano-opto-electro-mechanical systems (NOEMS), nanosensors, nano light-emitting diodes (nanoLEDs), nanooptics, nanoelectronics, nanofluidics, nanogenerators, nanomaterials, nanodevices, nanostandards, and nanofabrication.
This center is initiated jointly by the <a href="https://www.tu-braunschweig.de/mib/lena" title="Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology LENA" target="_blank">Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA) at TU Braunschweig and Deputy for Engineering Sciences at LIPI (Deputy IPT LIPI).
LENA is a research center devoted to research on nanometrology, located at TU Braunschweig, Braunschweig, Germany and jointly operated with Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt Braunschweig (PTB), Braunschweig, Germany with its more than 1000 employees being the second largest national metrology center in the world.
Deputy IPT LIPI is one of first echelons at Indonesian Institute of Sciences, which is a non-ministerial government institute (LembagaPemerintah Nonkementerian – LPNK) coordinated by the Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education of the Republic of Indonesia (RISTEKDIKTI) and is directly responsible to the President of the Republic of Indonesia. This institute is located at Jakarta, Indonesia. It was founded in 1967 and has today 26 research centers and about 4823 employees (1543 researchers).
Beyond joint top-level research, the center also aims at strengthening the exchange of students and scientists between both countries, contributing not only to improve the technology backbone, but also promote the mutual understanding of both countries and their societies.
